There is a special place on the southeastern shores of Barkley Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is a magnificent landscape of rocky cliffs fronting onto the wild Pacific Ocean, sheltered beaches and bays, lakes, mountains and forests. Since the beginning of time, it has been the ancestral home of the Huu-ay-aht First Nation. For thousands of years, the Huu-ay-aht lived on the land and sea according to age-old traditions and practices, changing and adapting when natural and human-made events presented challenges. The arrival of outsiders, beginning with explorers such as Captain James Cook in 1778, forever changed their world. Drawing directly from oral history passed down by generations of Huu-ay-aht chiefs and elders, Kathryn Bridge tells the compelling stories of the Huu-ay-aht people from their perspective. From creation tales and accounts of their traditional ways of doing things to alliances and conflicts with neighbouring tribes, this is a fascinating glimpse into the complex and rich history of a West Coast First Nation.

Twelve-year-old Marco Lippa is the star pitcher for his Little League baseball team and does his best to lead his team to victory against their cross-town rivals, reveling in the cheering and applause. After one particular game, he becomes sick and is rushed to the hospital. Treated for meningococcal disease, Marco wakes up to discover that he is deaf—and all of his dreams seem to crumble. Now Marco must come to terms with living in a silent world—and the grief, anger, and loss that seem to go with it. He is enrolled at the state boarding school for the deaf, leaving behind his comfortable home and his family and friends while he re-learns how to communicate and function without his hearing. As if that wasn’t hard enough, he quickly discovers that being deaf does not exempt him from the “normal” anxieties he faced at home—bullies, girls, and fitting in. Will he ever find his way back to his dreams?

Im Märchen haben Hexen immer alberne schwarze Hüte auf, tragen schwarze Umhänge und reiten auf dem Besen. Diese Geschichte ist jedoch kein Märchen. Sie handelt von echten Hexen ... echte Hexen tragen ganz normale Kleider und sehen auch wie ganz normale Frauen aus. Sie wohnen in normalen Häusern, und sie haben ganz normale Berufe. Deshalb ist es so schwer, sie zu erwischen. Großmama erzählte am liebsten von Hexen, den gefährlichsten Kreaturen der Welt.
